Jessica Alba seems… sometimes not all that smart. I don’t know why I get that impression, I just do – probably largely because she says shit like what she came up with in a new interview with Marie Claire UK. You see, Jessica was “pretty pissed off” about turning 30 and really struggled with it because she thought she couldn’t “party like a rockstar” anymore or something? I don’t know, it doesn’t make sense to me either.
“I was pretty pissed off. I don’t know why it was so hard, it just was,” she tells Marie Claire UK. “I was pregnant first of all, and I really wanted to party like a rock star! I didn’t even know I cared about my 20s until I turned 30.”
Despite the 30 life crisis, Alba admits that she is more comfortable in her own skin and has a newfound confidence that she didn’t have in her 20s. “I feel like I look better now. I think I came into my own physically in my 30s, even when I’d had kids,” she says.“ I feel more like a woman, with not such a girl face-I had such chubby cheeks”.
Yes, Jessica Alba – I know you had SUCH chubby cheeks. What a fat cow you were! I’m rolling my eyes here – it’s such bullshit. I love how she can spend one interview talking about how she knows she’s really good looking and the next talking about how difficult it was to feel comfortable with herself.
Also, life doesn’t stop when you’re 30. It’s just another year, can you get a grip? BYE, GIRL.

Jessica Alba spends most of her personal and professional life in some state of undress, and good for her – she’s a beautiful woman and looks great. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em, and all that. She does some movies here and there, as well, but if you asked most people what they think of when they think of Jessica Alba, I guarantee you her looks are going to be mentioned first, in some sense.
In a new interview with Maxim (via US Weekly), Jessica says that yeah, she might be hot, but she is more than just her appearance and she worked damn hard to become the woman she is today.
“If you put your whole identity behind this business, it’s brutal,” she told the mag. “It chews you up and spits you out; it spits out a lot of people.”
Alba reflected on how her journey in Hollywood was “so personal,” adding that she didn’t want to discuss it in detail. “But I definitely feel like I tackled something and came out the other side,” Cash Warren’s wife explained. “Everything that led up to all this was worth it. I’m really comfortable in my own skin, and I’m not apologizing for myself.”
Well, good for her? I wouldn’t apologize for being beautiful, either. Has anyone seriously ever asked her to, anyway? I don’t really get the context of that mini-rant (the entire interview hasn’t been published yet), but clearly she’s having some serious feelings about Hollywood.
I generally find Jessica Alba to be pretty innocuous. She doesn’t have much talent and you could take her or leave her from the business, but she’s not doing anyone any harm, so it’s whatever.

Thankfully, no one was dumb enough to give Farrah Abraham‘s shitty
porn bio erotica novel a film version, but she did recently say that she’d love Sandra Bullock to star in it if she ever did do it. LOL, dream big, girl! But listen, Farrah’s not totally unrealistic – she’ll settle for Jessica Alba if Sandy’s too busy.
From US Weekly:
“I’m not going to do a movie with this, so many people are obsessed with that idea, I think I’ve done, myself, enough TV, and me, obviously I would never be in a video or a movie of my book because that would be crazy,” she tells Us. “I mean, I guess I could – didn’t the Wolf On Wall Street guy kind of do it? Even though, it was such a different story and it was kind of absurd when like the plane goes down in the ocean, and I was like what?”
“I want to have like other awesome actresses and actors,” she continued. “Jessica Alba…Or like, who knows? Sandra Bullock is like really good, too. When you’re an actress you can play any age.”
I love that she claims “so many people” are obsessed with the idea. How delusional can she be? Poor Sandra Bullock. To even have her name uttered out of Farrah’s mouth must be devastating.

I feel like I’ve never seen Jessica Alba in a single movie, though I know she’s done them, obviously. Nowadays, she’s mostly just carting the kids around, or stepping out in something way too fashionable just to get papped being fabulous. She’s generally harmless, but there’s not much going on there (in my mind) – which is not to say I don’t like her, I just don’t generally notice her. Well, the acting thing is still her first love, so that’s what we should be talking about here – particularly, the fact that she has a nudity clause so that her grandparents will never be subject to seeing her bare breasts.
“I don’t want my grandparents to see my boobs. That’s it. It would be weird at Christmas. And, I mean, really, if you look at the movies I have done, getting naked would never ‘elevate’ the picture.”
True that – at least she realizes that! Gratuitous nudity is just so overdone and isn’t shocking or provocative anymore – and certainly isn’t necessary in movies like (let me IMDB this…) Spy Kids and Little Fockers.
In any case, Jessica also shared her thoughts on feminism:
“Where I was from, you had to answer to a man if he was the breadwinner. My mom told me that didn’t need to be the case for me—I didn’t need to rely on a man. She taught me how to hustle. I was determined to be financially independent. So I started making my own money when I was 12 [with acting]. That was freedom.”
Get it, girl. There’s no better feeling than making your own money and doing your own thing. I’m into it!

Let’s take a look at what celebs were wearing this week and dub a “winner” for BEST, WORST, and WTF.

This week we had Hollywood’s least impressive awards show, the People’s Choice Awards, and no one really brought their A-game fashionwise. I get that you don’t want to wear your best dress to the PCA but some of these outfits…yikes.
Take a scroll through the looks and then tell me YOUR picks for BEST, WORST, AND WTF. Mine are at the end!
